Edited by B S Hansson
The insect olfactory system has become a very important model of sensory
function, morphology and development. Extensive research covering a number of
insect orders has provided a considerable amount of data of which this book
provides a comprehensive overview. A special emphasis is placed on
pheromone-specific and host-related detection and processing of odour
information that are of importance both in insect reproduction and feeding, but
also in biological control, monitoring and integrated pest management. This is
a valuable information source, not only for researchers and students in the
field of insect olfaction, but also for those working on sensory systems, in
entomology, neurophysiology, and pest control. The contents include:
